‘I always ask them about their upbringing [when he interviews them on-air]. Their relationship with their siblings, their mom and dad, what they’ve done together as a family,” he explained how it helps him “deal better” with the guest.

Describing family as ‘the great human leveler’, he added that it doesn’t matter if you are ’18 or 80′ because you are ‘a product of your upbringing and you never lose it’.

He cited the example of British singer Charli XCX who told him she had to call her mother to let her know that her new album cover featured her naked.

“It showed his human side and his fragility,” he said.

“When you tell yourself you have to do things, it’s very easy for you to resent them and for them to feel like an obligation and something you don’t really want to do.”

Instead, she started saying, “I’m getting to.”

Turia recently shared her top tips for staying motivated.

“I like to think of my energy and focus as a torch, and a torch only shines in one direction. So when I was scared, overwhelmed and stressed, where was that torch shining on me? , she told Daily Mail Australia.

“I had to change direction. How? I asked myself different questions. I asked myself what I could do to give back to my community. I wondered what I could be grateful for. I wondered what I could do usefully, Turia continued.

“So when you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed, my advice is to shift your focus. Ask yourself, ‘How can I be of service? How can I do the best job I can do right now? And from what can I be grateful right now?”
